Alieware, a maker of high-performance computers for enthusiasts and professionals, unveiled recently its new Aurora m7700 mobile workstation featuring Advanced Micro Devices’ Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX or Athlon 64 X2 processors as well as two hard disk drives (HDDs) with RAID capability.

“Alienware’s new AMD-based Aurora m7700 dispels the belief that mobile systems cannot deliver the same experience as high performance desktops,” said Frank Azor, senior vice president and general manager of Alienware’s worldwide product group.

Alienware’s Aurora m7700 is based on VIA K8T890 (latest revision) and VT8237A and can incorporate a powerful desktop processor from AMD, up to 2GB of memory, a mobile PCI Express graphics adapter from NVIDIA Corp. – up to GeForce Go 7800 GTX, up to two hard disk drives with RAID support, up to two optical drives and so on. The computer may be equipped with 17” wide display with 1900x1200 or 1440x900 resolution.

“From the gamer looking to dominate the next LAN party to the executive requiring cutting-edge power both in and out of the office, the Aurora m7700 delivers the perfect high performance mobile solution for any individual,” Mr. Azor added.

Gamers are likely to appreciate high-end microprocessors and graphics cards in the new Aurora m7700, however, executives may not like weight of such a computer, which is likely to exceed 5 kilograms.

Pricing of the most basically configured Aurora m7700 starts at $2159, but when configured for the highest performance possible, the price per system exceeds $5500.
